Sign – Directed by Andrew Keenan-Bolger

When Ben summons up the courage to talk to Aaron at their local subway station he is surprised to find that Aaron is deaf. Despite the communication barrier love blossoms, but their very different worlds threaten to tear them apart.


  1. This is one of my absolute favorite short films ever. I don't know sign language (always wanted to learn) yet this film touches me in the most beautiful way. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful film with us…

  2. Unpopular opinion: I wish there were subtitles. I understood the entire thing as a whole, but I personally like to know what is being said (or signed in this case) in a video or show or movie. But that's just me. Other than that, the video was great. Loved it. Reminded me of The Society with Sam and Grizz. Great job!👍

  3. I love Joshua Castille's acting so much! He's the new boyfriend in this video, but he also played Ernst in the Deaf West revival of Spring Awakening, which you all should definitely check out!

  4. The first I saw Signs of love, I think they'll demonstrate love between two men beautifully, and the next second the scene starts it's about Sign language love. I'm so glad to watch this beautiful film. ❤️🏳️‍🌈🤟

  5. I love it how we were transported into a world of signs and visuals which I don’t know but I could understand it.
    The only thing I did not understand is why the music was playing throughout the entire time and only at the end there was a first and only voice in the movie “stand clear of the closing doors please”.
    It was a good short. Thanks for uploading here on YouTube.
